Dr. Carcas discusses the importance of mammograms and early detection as the key to surviving Breast Cancer. This year, because of Covid-19, there’s been an 80% drop in annual Breast Screenings since March. She explains the difference between the different types of screenings, and why people sometimes need a second screening for clarification of something detected the first time. She also describes changes in the breast that can be an indicator of something that should be followed up.
